Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Recently, residents of several Northeast Denver neighborhoods had the unique opportunity to offer input on the development of a privately owned property near what will be the Colorado Boulevard commuter station of RTDs new East Rail Line. Three design concepts were created during a six-month community engagement process for the property, owned by Urban Land Conservancy (ULC) and located at Colorado and Smith Road. Community discussions, hosted by Shorter AME Church, were facilitated by The Denver Foundations Strengthening Neighborhoods program staff along with Radian.

The Park Hill Village West Community Design Fair, held Saturday June 28, 2014, was the culmination of a six month community engagement process where residents were engaged in the design of three concepts for the development of the property. The Community Design Fair was presented by The Denver Foundation, Urban Land Conservancy, Together Colorado, Radian, GES Livewell, and FRESC.

This is not the first time that residents in Northeast Denver have had such an opportunity. Urban Land Conservancy followed a similar process for its Holly Area Development Project (HARP) in Northeast Park Hill. Five years later, the site, which was once a burned-out shopping center is now home to the Anschutz Center which houses the Vickers Boys & Girls Club as well several other nonprofits. The beautifully landscaped plaza also holds a playground, basketball, and futsal courts.
